- join:  Join goes back ultimately to a prehistoric Indo-European *jug- (which also produced English adjust, conjugal, jostle, joust, jugular, juxtapose, subjugate, yoga, and yoke). Its Latin descendant was jungere ‘join’, which passed into English via joign-, the present stem of Old French joindre. The Latin past participial stem junct- gave English junction  and juncture , and also, via Spanish, junta  (etymologically a body of people ‘joined’ together for a particular purpose, hence a ‘governing committee’).
=> adjust, conjugal, joust, jugular, junction, junta, juxtapose, subjugate, yoga, yoke
